Tuning the Volvo FM9

2007 Volvo FM9

9.4L – D9B –  Diesel – 380hp



The Challenge

Continuing our exploration of the Volvo FM series, this post delves into the benefits of tuning the Volvo FM9. ECU tuning presents an opportunity to enhance your engine’s performance. In a previous post, we discussed how tuning the Volvo FM13 can significantly amplify its towing capacity.

The Volvo FM series comprises heavy-duty trucks designed for versatile applications. Available in various engine sizes, power levels, and cab styles, these trucks cater to diverse needs. Here, our focus is on the 2007 Volvo FM9 equipped with a 9.4L D9B engine. Although sold as a 380 horsepower model, the manufacturer has restricted the power output to 380 horsepower through ECU settings. At Alt Tune, we offer adjustments to unleash the full potential of your truck.

The Solution

At Alt Tune, we tailor each tune to suit your vehicle’s specifications, driving requirements, and operating conditions. Our customized tunes prioritize safety and performance, ensuring an optimal driving experience. When optimizing a vehicle for business use, it’s crucial to ensure the tune maintains engine integrity—a principle integral to our tuning process. The result is enhanced power and torque, facilitating improved manoeuvrability and towing capacity for your Volvo FM9. Furthermore, engine optimization correlates with improved fuel efficiency. We use Alientech KESS3 to securely flash the tune.

Addressing emission concerns in diesel engines, we’ve developed a specialized solution to mitigate issues, preserving your truck’s reliability. A tuned Volvo FM not only enhances business operations but also safeguards against costly repairs.
